Reminiscences

Flirting with sorrow,
Sorrow like a friend,
Friend who gave pain,
Pain that never did end.

End of a rocky road,
Road of love so dear,
Dear so much to my heart,
Heart of hers seemed so near.

Near were her eyes,
Eyes that charmed me so,
So pretty was her smile,
Smile from her heart it did show.

Show my love I did once,
Once when she was forlorn,
Forlorn for some reason I knew not,
Not for one moment was she alone.

Alone I became soon,
Soon she forgot that day,
Day did come when she told,
Told me to go forever away.

Away from her little life,
Life that meant to me so much,
Much of my joy she took away,
Away my dreams with her such.

Such is the pain she gifted,
Gifted to me to forever keep,
Keep in my heart now and forever,
Forever she told me to weep.

Weep I shall not, for I did not lose,
Lose she did my caring heart,
Heart that did once for only her beat,
Beat with joy from the very start.

Start I shall, a new better life,
Life that I shall lead in my way,
Way I shall go, that I once did dream,
Dream that still with me does play.

Play with danger I shall again,
Again in my heart burns the fire,
Fire that always does push me ahead,
Ahead is the life I did once desire.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
